The Jacksonville Jaguars are ready to take on the New Orleans Sants in Week 2 of the preseason Monday. We’ve got a prediction plus the odds, injury report, live stream, and TV info for you.
The Jaguars showed in their preseason debut that they still need to work on several things. On the bright side, they will have two weeks to work out the kinks. Also, there were several reasons for encouragement, including the performance of wide receiver Tavon Austin and the work of the run defense.
Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer says he wants their offense to play faster. Monday’s game will give him Jacksonville the chance to do so.
Jaguars vs Saints odds for Preseason Week 2
According to WynnBET, the Jaguars are 4.0-point underdogs with a money line of +170. This means that you will win $170 if you bet $100. On the other hand, if you decided to put a bet on the Saints, their money line is -215, which means that you need to bet $215 to win $100 for a total payout of $315. Although it’s less risky, you would need to invest a bigger amount for a smaller payout.

Jaguars Injury Report vs. Saints Preseason Week 2
An official injury report isn’t issued in training camp but there are few Jaguars that may not see the field on Monday. Wide receiver DJ Chark Jr. underwent hand surgery and will likely be out until Week 1 of the regular season. He’s been running routes with his teammates but hasn’t caught any passes. So far, it doesn’t seem like he’s experiencing any setbacks.
Defensive tackle Taven Bryan is back at practice after missing a good chunk of training camp. He first missed time with injury and then was placed on the COVID-19/Reserve list. He could make his preseason debut against the Saints. The same is true for left guard Andrew Norwell, who missed time with injuries. Safety Daniel Thomas is still on the COVID-19 list but was doing conditioning work on Tuesday, per John Shipley o Jaguar Report. He could return soon but it’s too early to tell if he will play on Monday.
Jaguars vs Saints Prediction Preseason Week 2
Head coach Urban Meyer will use the Browns game as a learning experience and the Jaguars should play better than they did in Week 1. Quarterback Trevor Lawrence will likely show improvement and the offense should be able to score more points. However, the Saints are the more talented team and match favorably. Thus, taking New Orleans and the -215 money line is the way to go.
